Recent Updates to Lords of Delusia have been around Code Optimization and Ship creation.
Changes to collision have improved game performance massively. Where prior to Optimization the game sat at 30 Frames Per Sec at 3840x2160, the game now holds a steady 60 frames at the highest resolution.

Sound Instances are also being handled properly and have increased overall performance.

Most of the time however has gone toward creating more ships, and breaking them down into classes.

The ship class structure works as follows:
Fighters: Level 1-20 Ships with costs from 0-200k Credits
Frigates: Level 21-40 Ships with costs from 350k-1mill Credits
Cruisers: Level 41-60 Ships with costs from 1mil - 3mil Credits
Battleships: Level 61+ Ships with costs from 6mil+

Balance was starting to be considered with the following break downs:

/* DAMAGE (MGS = MachineGun)
* LEVEL 1-10 ~ 1-40 damage MGS 1-8
* LEVEL 11-20 ~ 40-100 damage MGS 5-12

* LEVEL 61-70 ~ 5000-10000 damage MGS 400-1000
* LEVEL 71-80 ~ 10000-25000 damage MGS 1000-3000
* LEVEL 81-90 ~ 25000-100000 damage MGS 3000-8000
* LEVEL 91-100 ~ 100k+ MGS 10k+
*/

Shields now have Recharge Rate on top of Hit Points which allow for modifiers to be based of recharge rate.
Engines now have Agility on top of Move Speed. Agility affecting how quickly the ship can move around the screen, and snap to max velocity. Move Speed affects how quickly the ship moves to its warp active location, and how fast the background, enemies, and allies move.

The full functionality of the boss fights in the war zones has been completed as well. Visual feedback still needs to be adjusted to bring out the fights a bit more, but the main stuff is there. The boss has Weapons and a Core which needs to be destroyed. Once the core is destroyed the boss is defeated and the player can dock at the nearest planet again.
